. did john kerry lock up the secretary of state job last night? >> you know, john kerry wants to be secretary of the state the way that you want to either be the quarterback of the new york giants or the owner of a strip club. but, so, he -- that's to say he -- >> giants, giants. >> that's to say he wants it bad. i don't think he's locked it up, because the truth is he wanted it up last time around, snatched away by hillary clinton. he has a formidable competitor in susan rice, very close to valerie jarrett, the president, very close to both of them. she's got a lot of internal champions and everybody in the administration says she knows the president's mind in a way that john kerry, as respectable as he is, is not. and i would continue to give her the inside track on that job. >> well, if he doesn't get it, he and i can go together in on the strip club. >> he would be a good partner for you. >> that would work out nicely. before break, an incredible moment, regardless of party, you couldn't help but appreciate this. former congresswoman of arizona, gabby giffords, still recov
. >> the romney campaign were critical of john kerry, i was emailing top advisors as obama's speech was going on, they continue to say what they're not talking about is the cly mt., how people are feeling day-to-day, the fact that the unemployment rate is stuck where it is. you didn't hear mention of the unpliment rate. they say the overarching environment is going to negate things like a convention bounce. chris: i saw bill clinton give a heck of a punching kind of speech. he punched back at every point from the republicans. how negative will they get? you say the obama campaign is running a personal assault on whether this guy, romney, is qualified to be president. >> the essence of what barack obama is doing is saying, mitt romney is is, a personal level, not credible as president of the united states. he's too greedy and too disconnected from concerns of the average american. the romney campaign are also running an intensely negative campaign, not based so much on obama's personal characteristics, his values or the idea that he's somehow in some sort of fundamental way corrupt. whereas the
biden's speech, john kerry's speech had more bite and had the crowd were fired up then the president and -- than the president himself. it was a fine defense. it was not remarkable. if you think about his prescription for the next four, there was some specificity but not too much. where it was strongest must be where it matters the least which was on foreign policy. it was a powerful, powerful speech. when he took mitt romney apart on foreign policy. we will never know why mitt romney did not talk about the truth in his speech. we will never know why they did not talk about afghanistan. democrats clearly saw that as a huge weakness for republicans and a huge strength for the democratic party. they came in with john kerry with what i think was the best speech i have ever seen john kerry give. they came in with joe biden who was classic joe biden. n. barack obama, talking in a really tough terms. the democrats suddenly all national security? what happened to american policy as we know it? >> one of the interesting things about this night is it gives democrats a chance to look strong on
governor, now an. in, putting in support behind president obama. john kerry will be here and actress longoria who is co-chair for the re-election committee. tonight on fox news the former congresswoman, gabrielle giffords, will deliver the pledge of allegiance. she resigned from congress this year after a a after a psychotic gunman shot her in the head. there has been a lot of talk about bill clinton's 50-minute speech last night with a passionate endorsement for his re-election. now, the romney campaign is responding. ed henry has that story on the convention floor. why don't we just start with the tale of two speeches: president clinton teeing up president obama. >>reporter: what we are told in terms of new information for president obama tonight, it is expected to unveil some new policy proposals to the economic plan that is on the table, the jobs bill, but nothing dramatic. aides saying there will not be a "state of the union" address with new kinds of poll proposals. he wants to hit some big themes and when you mention former president clinton, the biggest theme he tried to lay
and they look extremely bored. michael, senator john kerry is playing the president's sparring partner. the role of mitt romney, as he prepares for next week's debate. andrea mitchell asked him earlier about that memo from beth mye. rs. here is what mr. kerry had to say. >> please, please, please, give me 20 breaks, not just one. the fact is that mitt romney is a very good debater. he's practiced and practiced and practiced and practiced. this is the biggest deal in the world to him. >> he's right, isn't he? because mr. romney obviously has a lot more time to devote to debate practice than the president does and i expect it could be edadvantageous for mr. romney. >> well, i guess the other thing is romney has debated how many primary debates? about 20? it was ludicrous. so he's had a lot of time -- >> to be fair, michael, he wasn't debating figures of einstein intelligence. >> that's right. and a couple other differences, a one-on-one debate is very different than that clown car of, you know, 12 people coming out on the stage and the other is that in those primary debates, you know, people were
. senate foreign relations chairman john kerry called romney's statements, quote, callous and reckless. indiana republican dan coates, who once served as ambassador to germany, was asked about the kerry criticism of romney. listen. >> let's avoid the political statements right now. >> should that be true of mitt romney, as well? >> i think we need to keep the political focus on the election separate from the possible implications of what goes to security and how to protect our citizens. >> and late today president obama weighed in. >> there's a broader lesson to be learned here. you know, governor romney seems to have a tendency to shoot first and aim later. as president, one of the things i've learned is you can't do that. you know, it's important for you to make sure that the statements that you make are backed up by the facts and that you've thought through the ramifications before you make them. >> joining us now is ari fleischer, who's an unpaid occasional communications adviser of the romney campaign and also democratic strategist and obama 2012 pollster cornell belcher. ari, the

[cheers and applause] john and i have been truly blessed with a beautiful and strong family. and we're blessed, too, by you, our great democratic family. [cheers and applause] you have no idea how great you all look from right here. this has been quite a year for john and for me. we started last january crisscrossing america, talking about how with determination and vision and optimism we can end the injustice to americans. and this january it's going to end when we move two great friends, two great americans, john kerry and teres hynes kerry avenue.0 pennsylvania [cheers and applause] the victory ofts spirit and will, over tyranny and tragedy. and she will be the most generous first lady in the history of this country. i am so honored to stand with her. [cheers and applause] john kerry was in the navy, and so was my father. i grew up traveling around the world, living on navy bases
and john kerry fought it out every day about the war. in 2008 we were at war, and barack obama and john mccain fought it out every day in that war. this week when the financial crisis was absolutely on fire, at that debate, they were talking about the wars. this year, president obama does bring it up, he does bring it up at most of his stump speeches, how he explains what he has done and planning on doing talking about the two wars. he doesn't have to say much more because he's speaking to an empty room. the romney campaign has no identifiable position on afghanistan. they have been unwilling and unable to hold up that side of debate and so regardless of what it means for the candidates as a country we are deprived of a national discussion about a war we are in. 70,000 american families having skin in the game right now. we have -- that's part of the reason i'm looking forward to the debates. some ways sort of a post-policy campaign. and you can't do that in a debate, at least unless the debate is really bad. >> this is -- this is billed as a domestic policy debate, but -- and there are so
, the mixed reactions on twitter. the moment that surprised me the most last night was john kerry. where has he been all my life? >> too bad he didn't run in '04. >> we have a match-up of the two speeches. let's take a look. >> i want to address these next words directly to president george w. bush. in the weeks ahead let's be optimists, not just opponents. let's build unity in the american family, not angry division. no nominee for president should ever fail in the midst of a war to pay tribute to our troops overseas in his acceptance speech. mitt romney was talking about america. they are on the front lines every day defending america, and they deserve our thanks. >> i mean, i really thought his entire speech last night was fantastic. it had to have been for him so satisfying, like a triumphant comeback moment. here he is on stage making the case for the foreign policy that he believes in and advocated for. that was so his -- his character was so despicably undermined in the election as well. i thought this was a great moment for john kerry. >> it was a great speech. i had another favorite
mccain during that time to prepare for the debates. mitt romney is using john kerry as a stand in, rather obama is using john kerry as a stand in and kerry has practice from his run in 2004. on sunday, obama is going to nevada where he is going to be practicing for the final three days. >> torey dunnan, live in washington, keeping an eye on the debate prep for us. in political news, throwing back a cold one may provide an insight in to how you will vote. the type maybe an indicater of your views. the study published claims republicans are more drawn to sam adams as far as democrats, think heineken. >>> do you have need for speed? are you looking for something fun to to this weekend? you need to go no further than bob davidson ford, for a ride along, you are never going to forget. good morning maryland anchor, charley crowson got a taste of the extreme racing sport known as drifting. >> reporter: with its burning rubber, roaring engines and hair pinned turns , the sport of drifting may look like recklessness or eco run a muck. imagine if you did this for a living. >> it's like being in con
they wanted to take votes away from john kerry. they got banned by wal-mart for partisan registration efforts. how right-wing do you have to be to get banned by wal-mart? the most important part of all of that is taking democratic demonstrations and ripping them up as they have in the past or as they were in this case in florida changing the addresses so when somebody goes to vote they say i'm sorry you can't vote, you don't live here. even a republican from utah during an investigation of this earlier, said, wow, we didn't do anything like this, he said quote . . . and that's chris cannon republican of utah. did he ever get prosecuted for any of this? no, because after they do the voter fraud, bush won. and the bush administration decided they won't pursue charges. really? how surprising. so mitt romney goes to the same bag of trips. and they have also paid $20,000. they said we use this vendor for signature-gathering services, but have not used them since 2011. i love that quote. because it makes it seem like we haven't used these guys all the way from . . . last year. a
of the senate foreign relations committee, john kerry, wants more answers, co-signing a bipartisan letter asking for more details. but he told nbc's andrea mitchell that it should not be a partisan issue. >> the republicans are working overtime to try to exploit a very normal, run of the course, administrative letter that we agreed to on a bipartisan basis in our committee, simply to get some additional questions put in front of the state department. >> reporter: republicans also question how good the investigation can be when security concerns have stopped an fbi team from getting to the crime scene, having to work instead from libya's capitol city of tripoli, 400 miles away. a official said that while that is limited, it is more important to question people in libya thought to know about the attack. and he says the process is yielding more valuable information. one other note, peter king, chairman of the house committee, said that ambassador susan rice should resign because of her statement. >>> all right, we want to turn to andrea mitchell, chief foreign correspondent, and andrea how rare is
-- is compounded by the 47%. remember john kerry? "before i voted against the $87 million, i voted against it." that played into the negative narrative of john kerry being a flip-flop. away47% tape that won't go plays into the stereote of romney as an aloof, detached, uncaring, and not able to show any empathy for people who are not in his social or economic bracket. >> from the politico piece, "rare is the moment where romney sings the praises of the working stiff, the which is pulling a double shift." mike huckabee told the jay leno, "romney reminds you of the guy who fired tear." -- fired you." >> romney is not going to be at the clinton who feels your pain. he is not a great politician. but one of the reasons there is the stereotypes - it did not come out of nowhere -- it came out of tens of millions of dollars of ads by the obama campaign about how he handled people at bain capital. the essence of this is the other series of ads, which say that he wants to reduce taxes on the rich. romney has protested that that is not true, that he wants to reduce the tax rates on the rich. but he is co
. >> both candidates are in debate prep mode. the president practiced on friday with senator john kerry. last night on "60 minutes" we got a debate preview. the economy policy and the role of government. both asked about campaign hi hiccups. >> that's not the campaign. that was me. that's not a campaign. i've got a very effective campaign that's doing a very good job. but not everything i say is elegant. >> the president has acknowledged he failed to deliver on one of his biggest campaign promises. if you ask me the biggest disappointment is we vice president changed the tone in washington as much as we would like? >> you don't bear responsibility for that? >> as president, i bear responsibility for everything, to some degree. >> to some degree is an interesting little fighting words between the parties in washington. the two talked about the role of governmen government. >> presidencies are remembered for big ideas. emancipation, social security, man on the moon. what is your big idea? >> freedom. i want to restore the kind of freedom that has always driven america's economy and that's
, it will be john kerry's job. we will also hear from the vice president, joe biden and his son. a very good tribute to his dad. this is where this whole political thing transcends. whatever your biases are. we get a lot of e-mails from you folks saying that whether it is the rnc or the dnc, all the speeches -- i don't know about you, but i think they are all a part of americana. i think it is a shame when a lot of networks are relegating them to just an hour of prime time enforcing this to become a restricted media event it is. of course, we are not doing that on fox. we are not doing enough fox business. we intend to give both parties the attention they deserve. and the conventions themselves speak about our historical dna. i don't think this next fellow would disagree. >> this is part of our political tradition. this is really where you see people get involved in our political system and we feel very passionately about the views and we want to express it. this is what it's about. it does trouble me when a lot of young people say, you know, maybe these conventions are silly. i don't believe that.
bashingings of romney came from none other than john kerry. good morning from charlotte. it's friday, september 7th, 2012. this is t"the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. we're about to pack up here on the last show before we all disappear from charlotte, but the jobs report just came out a few minutes ago. we'll have mark za di, our man, and later, get the the first reaction from the white house where the president's top adviser, alan krueger. we've got beau biden here, he'll talk about that speech, but let's get right to my first reads of the morning. let's talk about last night's speech. the president aides acknowledged the speech wasn't the president's most poetic or memorable, but even though the speech was more methodical, it was intended to accomplish many of the goals the president set out. facing the political fight of his life, the president made the case for his re-election, asking americans to stick with him for four more years despite these tough economic times. >> our problems can be solved. our challenges can be met. the path we have may be harder, but it leads to a bett
they framed all of that, even john kerry i thought hit it out of the park yesterday on foreign policy, the democrats did very well for themselves and yet we're still headed to a very close race for the next couple of months. >> susan, you're shake being your head. a lot of people said this show was better produced, inspirational leadership for casting the sfrigs the dnc. the debates are coming up. that's a critical time when we see these two men come together. >> a month ago wait until the conventions now it's wait until the first debate because that's going to be it. that's the defining moment. i don't think there will be a defining moment unless one side or the other messes up big time. the debates are important. some say it favors governor romney, others say it favors president obama. at the end of the day, the first debate will be interesting because there are longer answer times so it will be interesting to see how they use their time. >> thank you so much. greet to have you all here. >>> so, if the markets are reacting like this to the jobs numbers, well what can we expect them

to john kerry a few years ago. but romney's people should have been smart enough to know this was happening. there was no presumption of that. they didn't get out aahead of the story. they didn't define their candidate well. there's two parts to this election, chris. one, is romney said a lot of people are unhappy with obama and his leadership and the economy. we accept that. he never made the connection that i'm the answer and solution. that's where the disconnect happened. >> mitt romney has been doing a lot to -- we saw it starting at the conventions. make himself more acceptable and help people understand him better. he's doing these direct into the camera ads. let me play one of those for you. >> more americans are living in poverty than when president obama took office. my plan will create 12 million new jobs over the next four years. helping lift families out of poverty and strengthening the middle class. >> the president is doing the same thing, doing some of these direct to camera. when you see a million ads in a battleground states, do these stand out? how do yo

talks like he's only seen russia by watching "rocky iv." >> former presidential nominee john kerry was not considered a head liner speech going into the convention last week, but the personality that he unveiled there and how aggressive he was against mitt romney really turned him into a top tier headliner. while it was fun to watch the other headliners wander off script and ad lib in their speeches, president obama usually sticks very closely to his prepared remarks. interestingly though, the night of the obama speech, one of the few times president obama ad libbed off his script at all was when he went after mitt romney on that same russia thing that john kerry had just killed him on. >> you don't call russia our number one enemy, not al qaeda, russia, unless you're still stuck in a cold war mind war. >> mitt romney did, in fact, call russia our number one geopolitical foe. he said that in march of this year. in the 2000s. >> this is to russia. this is without question our number one geopolitical foe. they fight every cause for the world's worst actors. >> whether or not the repu

years with miserable, miserable failures. the fact that john kerry did not run on that more is an embarrassment. >> it's only a failure if bush cared about getting bin laden. bush said he didn't care about getting bin laden. >> cenk: he said that. this is what pisses me off. a general in afghanistan had 5,000 guys when we had bin laden cornered. they said i want to go in. rumsfeld said no. no, don't get bin laden. for you, any of these navy seals six guys to remain republican is amazing to me. move onto the final issue real quick, which is look guys, should they have killed him? world's worst bad guy. no one will shed a tear for bin laden. he clearly was defenseless. he clearly did not have a weapon. they clearly would not have to kill him. >> i would like to see the trial. that's my crazy idea about ideals and it would be a great story to cover. >> yes, i mean, that bringing him in alive would have been better for obama's propaganda purposes honestly. the old, feeble, humiliated man. >> i'm naive to think that a country based on freedom should not be assassinating people. >
? inquiring politicians want to know and not just republican ones. democrat john kerry wants to get to the bottom of what u.s. authorities knew about escalating terror threats in libya. supposedly there were 20 cables warning the state department how to proceed at the embassy including pole from the late ambassador chris stevens himself why governor huckabee says this is escalating fast. when democrats want to know the chain of evens here, this goes beyond a political thing. >>governor huckabee: it does and it should. this is not about the politics of this election, this is about the integrity of the white house and whether or not we are going to stand by and allow our government to openly lie to us about why did chris stevens die? why did three other americans die with him? what did we know? when did we know it? why do we continue to blame a 13 minute youtube video when it was over didn't this was not a spontaneous mob. that was the official story that came from the white house and the state department. >>neil: what do you think might have been the reason for not calling it a terro
attributes of democratic candidates in the past like john kerry. like al gore barack obama is willing to look into the camera and distort any and all facts to woifrn voters. we are going to demonstrate how the 2012 obama play book is nothing short of the ultimate highlight real of the desperate methods long utilized by democrats in the past from class warfare to the race card we are going to cover it all. we are going to begin with the less most offensive scare tactics aimed at frightening you to support president obama. >>> you don't have any fresh ideas you use scare tactics to get voters. if you don't have a platform you paint one to run from. >> in his own words reads like a prophetic description of his 2012 el leksz campaign. >> if you reject the notion that our government is forever behold ento the highest bidder you need to stand up to the election. >> since he doesn't have a record to run on it's no surprise the left has taken a page out of the long established democratic play book they have no choice but to use scare tactics. >> murder rates are up robberies are up. >> when they say
